Candidates for the NSW Elections have provided detailed responses to SHOROC on their commitments for the region.

Congestion is hurting local businesses, meaning loss of local jobs and putting pressure on future job creation.
SHOROC supports the NSW Government’s Northern Beaches Transport Action Plan, which includes $633 million for a Mona Vale to the city Bus Rapid Transit, Warringah Road upgrades and feasibility studies for a Northern Beaches tunnel.

The SHOROC partner councils – Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah – are changing the way no stopping zones are displayed and are spreading the message to make sure the community is aware of these changes and to improve street safety.
